it entered a state of war with south korea. kim jong-un required rockets are ready to be fired at seoul and american bases. they revealed two nuclear capable b-2 stealth bombers. ian is covering the situation from the south. >> reporter: officials in seoul dismissed the latest outburst of more of the same. it followed a massive rally in the northern capital friday where tens and thousands came out in support of kim jong-un's charge, shouting death to the u.s. imperialists. >> escalating military confrontations would lead to further isolation. here's nbc news chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell. >> he has 8,000 troops poised 40 miles from seoul and the big worry is there could be a mistake. a miscal lags by the north would force the first woman president to retaliate. she has very little flexibility and that would instantly bring the united states into this conflict. >> earlier today north korea threatened to close the industrial complex but that site does remain open. hundreds of south koreans travel there daily. they consider the status of the the best signal of the int
greeted their leader kim jong-un during his made for tv inspection tour of military border facilities. kim wants the world to see this as he has dramatically stepped up his dangerous rhetoric. he's even threatening a nuclear threat as he faces tough u.n. sanctions for the nuclear test. the obama administration isn't backing down. >> we're also going to continue to increase the pressure if they don't make the right choice. >> reporter: on his way to afghanistan, defense secretary chuck hagel made clear how closely the u.s. was watching. >> the united states of america and our allies are prepared to deal with any threat. >> cnn has learned the u.s. has recently stepped up surveillance using aircraft, radars, and satellites already nearby. military officials say so far there are no signs of unusual military moves by the north. but there is a disturbing new weapons program, the kn-08. u.s. officials say this missile, shown in a north korea military parade last year, is now undergoing engine testing. it's a three-stage ballistic missile with a potential 3,000 mile range. that's not as far as th
defense on the west coast. >> chris: do you think that kim jong-un and the north koreans are a real threat to the u.s.? >> i don't think that threat is imminent and, i don't think they have the mechanisms necessary to really harm us but it is really good we are taking the precautionary measures to make sure they cannot do damage. it puts us in a different place as it relates to negotiating with them and, at the end of the day, chris, i know there's a lot of talk, 6-party talks and all kind of things that are occurring and all of us understand the key to this will be china. they are the ones that can actually affect the behavior in north korea because of the trade issues and certainly the support issues coming from china. into north korea. hopefully, china sees the threat to -- for nuclear proliferation in that part of the world, in the event they are not able to stop what now, is doing. >> chris: senator corker, senator durbin, thank you both. we'll have to leave it there. thank you for talking with us and, no doubt, there is tough bargaining ahead on the budget. thank you, gentlemen. >> t
not like being threatened by anyone, least of all an unpredictable dictatorial man like kim jong-un armed with a nuclear weapon. but u.s. officials appear confident that north korea is in no position to carry out its threats. >> the united states is fully capable of defending against a ballistic missile attack. furthermore, we're continuing to update capables capables and wen firm with the protection of south korea and the regional peace and security. >> despite the long-range missile launch north korea carried out in december, most experts say there's least two years, probably more than five years, before they can put a nuclear warhead on any missile that could possibly reach and strike hawai'i, for instance, or alaska, or the u.s. lower 48, shep. >> does anybody anywhere think these sanctions might make a difference? >> well, certainly the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice, thinks these are some of the most sweeping sort of punishments ever leveled by the security council. listen. >> taken together these sanctions will bite and bite hard. they increase north korea's isol
if the threats are indications of real insecurity in the regime or kim jong un's way of asserting authority. >> we don't really know the internal situation in terms of what he might have to do or who he might have to owe in terms of the ability to sustain power. >> reporter: in fact, u.s. officials tell us that it is extre extremely difficult to get human intelligence on the inner workings of the regime. they're not as worried about the big grand scale attack, but they are worried about smaller provocations like shelling some of those islands there near south korea that could lead to a tit for tat response and really see things escalate on the peninsula. ka kate? >> this is just the latest in a string of threats as you well know and you've talked about. thanks so much from the pentagon for us this evening. >>> let's dig deeper on this now with the veteran diplomatic troubleshooter, former new mexico governor and u.n. ambassador bill richardson. i don't need to remind our viewers, governor, but you have been to north korea a number of times and most recently just in january. thanks so much f
. this comes at the end of the week in which kim jong-un ended the 60-year peace deal with south korea and threatened the united states with a preemptive nuclear attack. joining me now is william cohen and, sir, i'm so glad you're here because this is kind of frightening jargon that's coming out of kim jong-un. i mean, is there any way to gauge how serious these threats are? to make sure this isn't all just bluster? >> well, there is a lot of bluster, but i think that he would understand that any threat to the united states that he seeks to carry out would be met with a response that certainly would alter the geography in that region of the world. and i think what we have to do, three things, number one, we have to lower the rhetoric, which we have done. we have to increase the training and readiness, which we're also doing of our troops in the region along with the south korean forces. and what we also have to do is intensify the sanctions against the north korean regime, which we're doing. and the final thing is president obama said we will reach out to you with an open hand, but we
for years. they brought kim jong un on numerous trips to china and they show him factories and they tell him this is how you need to reform your economy. the north koreans have not listened. they constantly issue provocations. it's not good for business. and the business of china right now is business. host: taking your calls on foreign-policy issues. up first, grand junction, colorado, on the democratic line is cat. caller: thanks for taking my call. i am a fan of obama. nobody does anything exactly right. when you are fighting your own country as well as having to fight foreign wars, it gets to be pretty hard. i think he has handled it in a very courageous and very gentlemanly way. i have never seen a speech being given when he was on his way getting in office where they showed a picture of a man with a sign strapped around his waist [indiscernible] i don't think we would of seen that before any other president. host: how about north korea being a tree pena nation to deal with, on an international level? caller: i think obama is doing the best he can, considering he is being forced into ma
't get any weirder, it does. here's kim jong-un palling around with dennis rodman one week and threatening pre-emptive war the next. we're trying to figure out what this means. he's a young untested leader. is part of an attempted test, the strength of the new president of south korea? is it, you know, some kind of an internal power move? does he need to show that he's a tough guy to his generals who at the end of the day are the military backbone of the regime? that's part of the puzzle. but at the end of the day, it won't mean anything more than this. for the first time, china has really from the start been on board with sanctions against north korea. they helped draft this resolution which tells you just how annoyed they are at north korea. they have, to a certain extend supported it in providing it with fuel and food and this seems to be the straw that broke china's back. >> yeah, because that is pretty significant because china together with the united states, all the other members of the u.n. security council, they are on board because in the past the chinese were the
about bellicosity. kim jong un is really, i mean, quite beside himself, threatening nuclear devastation, visiting it upon the united states. your thoughts about how the united states should react. >> yeah. lou: white house has already said, no, we'll handle your nuclear threat, thank you very much. >> that doesn't make me feel reassured. well, if you go ahead -- a, you're going to have nuclear weapons, b, you might launch them at us, but don't worry, we'll take care of them. we would be laughing at these guys between dennis rodman and the music video, but the fact is he's getting his hands on nuclear weapons, and there'll be proliferation in south korea and japan. you'll see more nukes in the region. in five years we could have five more nuclear power. lou: and, ambassador, 30,000 of our troops on the dmz in south korea. isn't it about time that we remove those troops? because they are clearly in harm's way and would amount to very little in the way of resistance should he send forces over that line or missiles or rockets. >> well, the plan is to bring the troops back away from the dmz
from pyongyang and kim jong-un warned of preemptive strikes on the united states. in addition to increased radar capability in japan, the extra interceptors are planned for alaska, along parts of the west coast, as well as undisclosed he locations on the east coast. the west coast designs will be able counter attacks from an inter-continental ballistic missiles like the ones you're seeing in the animation here. the upgrades originally proposed by the bush administration were halted when president obama took office. while some are critical of the president for this, others say that it wasn't an appropriate time. listen. >> we didn't think we needed to take a lot seriously before 9/11 and we learned afterwards we did. this young korean dictator is just like his father and grandfather before him, erattic and sporadic and the regime is unpredictable. >> reporter: a white house official says that north korea advanced the missile capability in the last six to eight months and the plan is to have in place by 2017. >> thank you, a concern after senator lindsey graham drops a bombshel
theater kim jong-un. and the pentagon says we believe this young had ought to be deterred and if not we will be ready. how seriously do we really take a threat of a nuclear strike from north korea and what is this about? >> they were planned by the bush administration and the first thing the obama administration did was cancel them and now they are deploy them. so, better late than never but it is late. north korea has tested delivery systems and had nuclear tests and there were iranian observers at the most recent test and they are close to pakistan. is there a serious problem that north korea is a nuclear weapons state? and talking to other states are they on the verge of that? i am for missile defense but it does not substitute if a robust foreign policy to get back to the rand paul question which deals with the states before they become nuclear states. this raises the question of what happens with iran. the president's national security advisor said this week, can you believe this, the united states will not accept north korea as a nuclear state. it is not nice. they are a nuclear s
korean force and over a million forces led by kim jong-un. >> this particular combination, the intense rhetoric, also unpredictable leader makes this a pretty tense moment. >> and the u.s. military intelligence is watching north korea very carefully. they have increased surveillance. so far they say they have not seen signs of any unusual north korean troop movements. wolf? >> they hope it is just verbal bluster. >> that's the problem. is it bluster or could it be real. it is steps the north has taken under this relatively new leader are really very different and very threatening. >> much more coming up. >>> they are called green on blue attacks. a gunman in the uniform of afghan security forces killed american troops. the shooting came as defense secretary chuck hagel wrapped up his first visit to afghanistan as secretary of defense and follows another outrageous verbal assault by karzai. barbara starr joins us with the latest. it was a slap in the face to the defense secretary, the way he was treated by karzai on the first visit abroad as the defense secretary. >> well, indeed, wolf.
kim jong un. rodman is there filming "basketball diplomacy." >>brian: you know what kim jong un said? he believes it can bring our countries closer together. they hit it off. they had that magic. >>steve: can we live without him? >>gretchen: he's been out of the news for awhile. i think we can hand him over there for a couple of years. see if he can get something done. >>brian: we'll follow dennis rodman. also if we have time, sequester talk. no deal as of late. the deadline without lawmakers reaching a deal. at 11:59 tonight it will kick in. >> remember, large majorities of both houses of congress voted in favor of the budget control act knowing that if the debt-reducing super committee failed then sequestration was possible. that super committee did fail back in 2011 and fast forward to yesterday when congress adjourned for the weekend with no deal in place to avoid the automatic cuts that go into effect by midnight. republican senator lindsay graham said the white house and congress share the blame for what's coming. >> you've got one obligation that nobody in this body has. you'r
to north korea and satisfying the leaders kim jong un's love of basketball and does this help prop him up to have prominent americans, and there have been others, to go to north korea and show friendship with the regime? >> well, first of all, andrea, you have overstated my basketball skills, so i want to set the record straight on that. >> no. you are an athlete. we know that. >> but clearly, i thought secretary kerry put it best when he said that dennis rodman has been a great basketball player, and as a diplomat, he is a great basketball player. >> at the same time would your warning be to other americans not to show signs of friendship to this regime at a time when they are, in fact, threatening to break the armistice, the 1953 armistice with the south? it's maintained for all of these decades. >> the north has made a number of threats and taken a lot of provocative actions, which we think are condemnable and aren't getting it anywhere, and, frankly, i think the north needs to understand that as long as it persists in this approximate behavior that, the sort of friendship that it want
kim jong-un has been escalating his nuclear threats for weeks. >> let's go straight to our pentagon correspondent, bar practice starr. she has details. >> wolf, the concern is that kim's fiery rhetoric could become a reality that the white house has to deal with. the north korean video shows the white house in the crosshairs. the u.s. capitol blowing up. the latest messages posted by the north korean government online. a further sign of what the u.s. worries is an increasingly unpredictable kim jong-un, the north korean leader who threatened war with the united states and south korea. on cnn's "the lead," the president's chief of staff told jake tapper, the u.s. will be ready for any provocation. >> obviously the kind of antics and language we've heard, including what you just showed on your show here, are the kinds of actions that don't connote strength, but rather connote some kind of weakness and frankly, outlandish behavior. >> reporter: even before this video, the u.s. intelligence community had a grim outlook. >> the rhetoric, while it is propaganda laced, is also an indicator
the north koreans to behave for years. they brought kim jong un on numerous trips to china and they show him factories and they tell him this is how you need to reform your economy. the north koreans have not listened. they constantly issue provocations. it's not good for business. and the business of china right now is business. host: taking your calls on foreign-policy issues. up first, grand junction, colorado, on the democratic line is cat. caller: thanks for taking my call. i am a fan of obama. nobody does anything exactly right. when you are fighting your own country as well as having to fight foreign wars, it gets to be pretty hard. i think he has handled it in a very courageous and very gentlemanly way. i have never seen a speech being given when he was on his way getting in office where they showed a picture of a man with a sign strapped around his waist [indiscernible] i don't think we would of seen that before any other president. host: how about north korea being a tree pena nation to deal with, on an international level? caller: i think obama is doing the best he can, considerin
. then there are these north korean threats coming from the regime of kim jong un to launch the nuclear preemptive strikes as north korean officials call them. frankly, megyn, nobody is taking those very seriously. frankly, while north korea does have a long range missile that could possibly reach hawaii or even alaska, it does not yet have the technology to put a nuclear warhead on that missile. that's not to say the threats are being dismissed entirely because obviously there are other ways of attacking the united states. but the video you just showed, the missile launches they have done, the nuclear tests they've carried out, all are not meaningful right now because they're moving towards a nuclear weapon that can reach the u.s. they do not have it. most experts will tell you, they are at least two years away from achieving that technology, megyn. >> megyn: all right. jonathan, thank you. well, new questions today about whether what some are calling the president's 2014 mid term election strategy may have just back fired. today we'll look at the media pushback on the exaggerations over these budget cha
. mike rogers questioning, quote, the stability of north korea's kim jong un after a recent series of provocative moves. >> the shear threat they would openly threaten a nuclear attack against the united states is problem enough but the military movements along the dmz and north korea are whole new set of problems. it's the largest military in the world still in uniform. this is something that we have to take seriously and you can see that they are looking for some provocations not just along the border, islands they are interested in and they fired artillery on the island. this is concerning because we don't know the stability of their leader, 28 years old. we're just not confident that we know he wouldn't take those steps. >> heather: meanwhile, the north's foreign minister saying his nuclear weapons are not a bargaining chip to trade for economic concessions. >> gregg: serious concerns being raised about the obama's administration handling of the benghazi terrorist attack. injured survivors were told to be quiet by the administration. elizabeth pran reporting from washington. >>
. >> a news alert here, we want to bring you up-to-date on north korea. according to state media kim jong-un has told to be ready on attack, and missile flew two stealth bombers over south korea as part of a military exercise and we'll have more on north korea with kt mcfarland in the next hour. around the country, they're sending the president a clear message, approve the keystone pipeline for the benefit of the economy. it's the first time that lieutenant governors have banded together to advocate something national. we happen to have one of them on the show and lt. governor sanchez, good morning. >> good morning, good to be with you. >> it's good to have more voices out on the situation. and what compelled the lieutenant governors of so many states to band together on this issue? >> well, first, let me say i was very proud to be one of 22 lieutenant governors to be urging the president to approve the pipeline. we understand it's about job creation and working with our governors to provide opportunities for our citizens. i can't think of a better project than the approval of the k k keysto

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: barbara in d.c. welcome. >> caller: hi, stephanie. hi mooks. i'm calling because i had a comment about ann romney and how she's blaming the media for presenting the romneys as wealthy snobs. >> stephanie: right. how dare they. >> caller: she did that all by herself. she was on a morning show and the reporter was asking her about would the romneys release more than two years of tax returns. >> stephanie: when she said you people to robin roberts. >> caller: exactly. >> stephanie: that seemed unfortunate. an unfortunate scene from "the help." >> caller: that's exactly what she said and she sounded like a stuck up snob. >> here, have some pie! >> stephanie: we did. we baked them a magical electoral pie.

getting to know kim jong-un, what his intentions are and willing to do to prove his muscle as a leader in north korea, one. recent quotes out of north korea that the country will exercise the right to preemptive nuclear strike to destroy the strongholds of the aggressors and defend the supreme interests of this country. is there something new going on here? is this different? >> it is a little bit different. bellicose language out north korea's propaganda arm is not new. from time to time they threaten to turn tokyo or seoul into a sea of fire. they have done that with our own capitol. it comes on the heels of a fairly successful north korean nuclear test of 7 kilotons, which is half of hiroshima. jay carney, doing best impression of john wayne, not terribly convincing. the u.s. probably has capable of defending against the threat today. that threat is getting consideringably worse. our defense is no thanks to the obama administration, canceled the airborne laser which is the best blatt form to defend against a north korean missile in the boost phase. martha: they won't necessarily rec
jung unso he'll thing twice before another attack. >> in fact, north korea's leader kim jong-un recently threatened to wipe out south korean units on another border island. a defense official i spoke with said, look, they normally don't even talk about agreements like this. the fact that they are shoud be taken as a direct message to north korea. kate? >> sure hope it acts as a deterrent because you know that's what they're hoping for. chris lawrence, thanks so much. >>> now to the fight over gun control, which is raging here in washington, as well as outside the nation's capital. both sides are pulling out all the stops. on the one hand, a world-famous comedian and the world's richest mayor on the other, one of america's most powerful lobbies which is now being criticized for making its pitch even to residents of a town hit so hard by a recent school massacre. cnn's tom foreman has been look noog this. tom, it goes without saying that passions are so high on this issue, they have always been. but what is the latest? they are really going all-out here. >> they really are. what y
rodman. >> who better than basketball great dennis rodman. >> there he is. >> kim jong-un. we'll show you the surreal pictures from his trip next. i know what you're thinking... transit fares! as in the 37 billion transit fares we help collect each year. no? oh, right. you're thinking of the 1.6 million daily customer care interactions xerox handles. or the 900 million health insurance claims we process. so, it's no surprise to you that companies depend on today's xerox for services that simplify how work gets done. which is...pretty much what we've always stood for. with xerox, you're ready for real business. which is...pretty much what we've always stood for. i've always kept my eye on her... but with so much health care noise, i didn't always watch out for myself. with unitedhealthcare, i get personalized information and rewards for addressing my health risks. but she's still going to give me a heart attack. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. you name it...i've hooked it. but there's one... one that's always eluded me. thought i had it in the blizzard of '93. ha! never even ca
